C & ncurses problem *warning - long source

P: n/a
Hello everyone, I've been working on a simple editor myself and I seem
to be having some problems with ncurses or so. I have been debugging
this program quite a lot trying to detect where the bug is hiding. If
you try to compile it gcc -o rosy rosy.cpp -lncurses and run it with
an input file, the delete and backspace characters function great
however when you start pressing keys like, right left or so to
navigate through the file, it prints ']'. I've been watching the
variables changing too closely but nothing really happens so I suspect
it has maybe something to do with ncurses. At the end of the source
file there is a function called 'print' which sums up the buffer to be
printed on the screen, if you take a look at it before it is returned
you can see that it includes the normal characters and not ']' however
when it is printed the ']''s appear. The source is long and maybe I am
not doing right to paste it here but I will try. Thanks a lot and help
is highly appreciated

p.s sorry for the lack of commenting

sorry I mean g++ -o rosy rosy.cpp -lncurses not gcc. Such a bad habit
really :p

curses / ncurses isn't actually part of the C language. This also
looks more like an environmental issue, eg your terminal isn't
configured for the right keyboard escapes.

You will probably have more luck in comp.unix.programmer, where this
is probably more topical.

Thanks for the reply, I will probably ask for help in
comp.unix.programmer, and by the way I truly like the quote you have
there :D

Ignore McCormack, he is a troll. Provide adequate quotations to

Wrong group. ncurses is not in the standard library, thus
off-topic. Try a group that deals with your system.
